Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Iceflake Studios today announced that post-apocalyptic colony sim Surviving the Aftermath is leaving early access. The full version's release date is slated for the middle of November.
Surviving the Aftermath began its early access journey two years ago, starting as an Epic Games Store exclusive before making its way to Steam in October 2020. During this time, it also saw a handful of delays attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Surviving the Aftermath puts players in charge of a colony of survivors, tasking them with expanding it, ensuring it has enough resources, and overseeing expeditions in the outside world. It's not an easy endeavour, since natural disasters, wild animals, and other humans looking to make it in the post-apocalypse will try to get in your way.
Since its early access launch, the title has received several content updates that added new systems, fleshed out others, and fixed a variety of issues as player feedback rolled in.
Surviving the Aftermath's full version release date is slated for November 16, when it launches on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch for £26.99 or your regional equivalent. The title will be forward compatible with Xbox Series X/S and PS5, so purchasing the last-gen console version lets you play it on current-gen consoles.
The Outback Radio Pack has also been added to the game's Early Access Founder's Edition, owners getting it as a free update when the title fully launches.
If you're looking to try out the game while it's still in early access or want to get it for a cheaper price, Surviving the Aftermath's Steam version will be discounted by 25% on Valve's storefront until November 1.
